About Me

Hi, I'm Joe.

I am a software developer currently living in Oklahoma City with my wife Ashley and our two daughters.

Born and raised in Texas, we moved to Oklahoma in 2005.

I spent a couple years in Vermont at Norwich and the finished college at Tarleton State in Stephenville Texas.

After college, I got my first job at a company called MTW (Making Technology Work) as a COOL:Gen developer. My role was building proxies between VB6 COM components and mainframe systems. Eventually, I got into the web development side of things and started building the ASP and VB6 COM objects that powered our app.

After MTW, I went back to Tarleton this time as a Web Developer working for the university. Started on my Masters just because it was something to do and I got an employee discount on the tuition. It was a great place to live and work and I met my wife there and yes she was a student, a senior, at the time. After she graduated, we moved up to OKC.

I spent 11 years as a Software Developer at MTM Recognition working with ASP.NET using C#. That was a great ride and allowed to me grow tremendously as a developer and build some really interesting applications.

After MTM, I did a short stint at Paycom, before an oppurtunity came up at Express Professionals working in their back office on modernization and automation initiatives with LANSA.

You can find me on Twitter and LinkedIn.
